More About the Author

About C. David Murphy

Being raised in the mountains of North Carolina had a special influence on me. The dreams that invented these stories started there. Even at an early age, being all of six, my teachers saw the capacity in me to create stories with such depth - that they seemed to marvel at the tales which I wrote for my class assignments. While my devotion to and inspiration for writing continued to be strong through my teen age years, there was a force equally strong bearing it's influence. Parents! My Father in particular. Who was, understandably, not "over the moon" with the idea of his son pursuing a career as perilous and uncertain as a writer.

And so, finally I embarked on a financial career. With my bachelor's degree in accounting, I've spent the majority of my Adult life in both the retail and manufacturing industries. But I never stopped writing. Because that's what and who I am. There is no greater joy I've found on this earth than to create characters with true and genuine emotions, feel their heartbeat through every word I write; their trails, their hopes and ambitions; to breathe life into their eyes and see their souls become one with me and the reader.

It's my hope that when someone picks up my stories and reads the full weight of them, that somehow I've affected change in their lives, brought them to places they could never have imagined before, and moved them to believe in humanity again - to go out into the world and create "goodwill towards all".

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. from Promotional Book Tours/

What a great book, in plays in the early 1900's in North Carolina.
It tells you about a boy called Landon and his family and friends. They are convinced that to proof they become man to do a very dangerous river trip. it is a wild river with a waterfall drop.
They do have help from a man building their float who appeared later to be a ghost. A insane priest is around and he is so weird and sort of funny in a way too.

You learn about Cherokee history and the trail of tears, when they make the dangerous trip over the river and the dump down the waterfall, they end up on a beautiful island that is clearly haunted at night, Landon finds a diary and reads about a little girl and her life story, how she felt in love with a Cherokee boy, a mutual love but her father did everything he had to do to keep her away from this boy.

The girls is closer to Landon then he thinks, when he finds out more and more he does everything in his power to make things right. A lot of people are after him to get the diary off him and he is in serious danger.

Landon finds a lovely girl when his dad gives the yearly day for the workers on his farm, you will find in this book, romance, adventure, paranormal , history and more, it is a great build up of characters and I honestly hope I will read more about them (hint to writer lol)

I have to say this book was pretty amazing and it's only $0.99 right now for a whole lotta book! A Diary's House has everything. History, the paranormal, mystery - it was huge but it was fantastic. Like I said the book is big but good, the kind of book you cozy up next to the fire and lose yourself. Once I started it sucked me in and I had to know what happened next.

A Diary's House has a unique story line and I really enjoyed the Cherokee legends, that was a nice touch. I truly think this book has something for everyone!

This book was a beautiful quilt of love, family, history and
legend, sewn together with the thread of a coming-of-age adventure. The
characters were engaging, and the diary wistfully evocative. The prose was
deep and insightful. The author winds together all these threads into an
engaging and sweet story. I reviewed this book as part of a promotional tour, and this is my honest review.

Historical novels are some of the most interesting ones for me to read. I love having a glimpse into life as it was in the past and A Diary's House was a fascinating read for that reason. A Diary's House is really so much more than a love story. The Native American legends included in the book were particularly interesting and when you added in mystery, ghosts, pirates and folklore, it definitely captured my interest. Don't expect to breeze through this book quickly, it's an in depth read but well worth it.

C. David incorporates Cherokee Legends within this captivating historical romance which impressed me. While "A Diary's House" is not a fast read, you will have a hard time putting it down. The characters and plot were well written with plenty of adventure.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

A Diary's House: Where True Loves Endures
I have to say, after reading the dedication; it was difficult for me to pick up this book. My heart hurt for the Author. I found this book to be very descriptive and detailed. Almost as if the details were as important as the storyline. As for the storyline, I enjoyed it. The way he mixed in Cherokee lore with historical fiction really was great. The way he told of the boy becoming a man and the intensity and mixture of plots was interesting. On the whole, once I got started, it was fun to read. I felt it was a story influenced by Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson with a great love story and background for the set up. It was a bit long, but I feel it was due to the written attention to detail. If you enjoy historical adventure and romance, this will be the book for you. When all is said and done, I give it 4 stars.

I had a hard time getting into A Diary's House. I almost put it down more than once. It was worth the wait. Once the story unfolds it weaves a tale of folklore and love. I enjoyed the parts of the Cherokee and the lovely descriptions of North Carolina. Family secrets, love, and legend not to mention pirates and ghost. I give this one a thumbs up!
